Oh hell yes, I've been waiting for a keyboard with a layout like this one. The big test will be whether or not it's on par with the Rapid, quality-wise.

This is nice. Been looking at a 10 keyless version but this seems even better.

I was interested in the older rapid fire design but the lack of a Num pad and the excessive branding scared me away. Definitely going to give this a look.

...as always we let our customers choose which Cherry MX switch they prefer.
Cool.

Cool.
The excessive branding is the only reason I didn't pull the trigger on a rapid actually. xD

If i had to get a smaller KB, this would be it, I just can't work without a numpad.

Holding FN for 3 seconds might be annoying for some though. I prefer the older method of pressing it once and it sticks till pressed again.

I have a Razer keyboard that integrates the numberpad and the directional, page up/down buttons

that is exactly what this keyboard does, unfortunately the razer keyboard is larger than it has to be.
